I am an experienced and qualified music teacher and am now offering online piano lessons via Zoom for older teens and adults.

I have a BMus and Dip Tch from Canterbury University and an FTCL diploma from Trinity College.  I have taught music as an instrumental teacher in the private studio and also as a classroom music teacher in primary and secondary schools.

In addition to my teaching experience, I have played with Orchestra Wellington, the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra, and the Wellington Chamber Orchestra. I also perform with professional chamber music groups for concerts and events such as weddings and functions.

I am passionate about encouraging students to improve their musical skills and to gain a greater knowledge and appreciation of music.

Teaching Info

My online piano lessons are best suited for students who are playing at an intermediate level, from approximately grades two to six.  However, if the need arises, I am also happy to teach beginner piano as this can work with online lessons.

My music lessons are designed to encourage students to gain a life-long love of playing music.  I include both technique and musicianship skills in each lesson and work with my students to ensure that they reach a high level of musical achievement and performance.

I use a music-reading approach to learning, incorporating this into technique and repertoire so that students can eventually become independent learners, able to approach music with the security and the confidence of knowing they are able to understand and interpret new pieces.

I am happy to explore both classical styles and popular repertoire and aim to have students learn a varied program of contrasting music that best suits their interest and needs.
